Apart from Ruslan Shavetdinnov, whose case has been widely reported by the likes of the Washington funded RFE/RL, the rest of the individuals I have covered are low level activists really. This time, I discovered the brother and husband of Lyubov Sobol, the Moscow resident activist, and close Navalny comrade.
The information is now relatively dated, it actually comes from 2016 but it has resurfaced recently, and it is worth reposing here because it adds to the series I was running.
It turns out, the brother of Lyubov Sobol, Grigory Musatov took active part in the Euromaidan.
My friend sent me the following screenshot. Looks like many Russian liberals openly embrace Stepan Bandera, and the regime in Ukraine. After Ruslan Shaveddinov and Ilya Novikov, here comes Kirill Naumov.
There is another, even more curios text on his photo, it says in Ukrainian: “Hands off from volunteers and soldiers.” It is likely one of those campaigns that seeks impunity for Ukrainian myrmidons that fought in the East of the country. You see, many of them have PTSD and other psychological problems, and they get caught for serious crimes like robberies and murder. There exists a group of people that thinks this constitute a campaign of persecution against patriotic defenders of the motherland.
I understand some Ukrainian villager from Lvov or Cherkasy may feel strongly about this but that a Russian would put this into his profile picture suggests mental illness.
As you probably may have heard, an ally of Alexey Navalny, Ruslan Shaveddinov, was grabbed by the military, accused of dodging the draft, and sent over to Novaya Zemlya, an island in the Arctic to do his service…
And here is why I don’t give a fuck. Ruslan is a supporter of violent neonazis in Ukraine…
I have found his tweets:
In the wake of Russian intervention in Crimea, the Russian pro-Western opposition organised a confused and cringy protest in support of the nationalist regime in Kiev.
In fact only marginals in Moscow supported the Kiev regime…
“Glory to Ukraine!” is a nazi slogan. I have covered this here before.
Shaveddinov is making jokes about the tragedy of 2 May 2014, when banderovite yobs literally burned alive people in Odessa.
Polina Nemirovskaya, who works for Khodorkovsky’s Open Russia, say’s one ought not to mourn the people that burned alive in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa because these “vatniks” (a mocking term for pro-Russian, and pro-Putin people) weren’t actually from Odessa, which is not true.
Ruslan made this Tweet on the day of the tragedy of 2 May simply regurgitating Ukrainian nazi propaganda. Also note that the protests in Odessa did not carry a separatist message, so Odessa People’s Republic was not on the agenda.
Leftist activist,Sergey Udaltsov told to go fuck himself by Ruslan.
“Donbass” was one of the nazi militias that went to suppress the aspirations of the Donbass people.
I guess they celebrated the victory of the Maidan in Kiev, given the date.
Egor’s attorney, Ilya Novikov says he will donate the money collected for Egor’s defense to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
As always it isn’t worth my time to translate the entire drivel, so here comes the important stuff:
Everything that [Egor] says about the effectiveness of nonviolence is generally alright and there isn’t of course any extremism in that. And his words about love and responsibility are very sincere, and I like them very much. However, unlike Egor I believe in the effectiveness of violence. And I know, that for some to peacefully protest in 198 ways of Gene Sharp, and not end up in the van with broken ribs after each protest, it is good for some who are ready to shoot and be shot to be near by. And if they are not near, one pays with further broken ribs and heads of peaceful protesters, and even complete passerbys.
Therefore, the money I received for the defense of Egor I will transfer to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And a further 99,999₽ from me personally because on the 6 December, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a holiday. And you too can join, the line of defense is not just in court.
A demonstration in support of ethnic cleansing in the Donbass took place in St. Petersburg, Russia…
Because nobody gives a fuck in Russia, only few local crazies have arrived. This one is particularly interesting:
Here he is, in his own words:
A video has been circulating featuring activists exiting a police vehicle, and being met by Boris Vyshnevsky of Yabloko. It features a strange mix of Ukrainian national, Ukrainian nationalist and LGBT symbols.
